With actress Erica Ash (‘Survivor’s Remorse’, ‘Real Husbands of Hollywood’) tapped to topline, April 10th brought with it the unveiling of BET’s fast-paced legal drama, ‘In Contempt.’ Featuring a star-studded cast filled out by the likes of Richard Lawson, Christian Keyes, and more, the series sees Ash portray “Gwen Sullivan” (a talented, tough, and opinionated public defender whose passion for her work makes her hated among her colleagues in an unforgiving legal system).
Its premiere this week was greeted by a wealth of promising reviews from viewers who took to social media to express their approval and anticipation for what was to come. Unfortunately, that fanfare was not reflected by the week’s end when official ratings were revealed. Not even placing in the top 50 most watched shows of the night, ‘In Contempt’ managed to rake in….
With the viewership figures above the show ranked #57 among cable broadcasts on April 10, 2018.
Here’s hoping with its talented cast, gripping storyline, and hard-hitting subject matter the remainder of ‘In Contempt’s season 1 (which consists of nine more episodes) sees the rise in ratings it deserves. [source]
